, for her introduction of this bill and her comments honoring the memory of mr. kling. he truly was a caring, a compassionate and a loyal person and a loyal friend that made everyone who crossed his path feel as though they were the most special person he knew. finally, mr. speaker, when we announced that legislation to rename this facility at the facility, there was some veterans standing out in front waiting to go in. and they asked what the hubbub was about. they asked why all the tv cameras and i explained to them who bill kling was and why this was being done. they were grateful to know and veterans just like those veterans when they walk through the front door, will not only learn about bill kling but his example for continuing to work hard every single day for his fellow veterans. what a great honor we're bestoge on his family and by -- destowing on his family. -- bestowing on his family. i ask my colleagues to support this bill honoring this great american. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from florida. mr. miller: i have no further speakers. the speaker pro tempo
or does the gentlelady reserve her time? mrs. davis: i'm sorry, mr. speaker. i reserve the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlewoman reserves the balance of her time. the gentleman from california. mr. mckeon: thank you, mr. speaker. i rise to thank the gentlelady for her leadership not only on this issue but on the leadership she helps provide to our committee. we have several women serving on the house arm services committee, and they do an outstanding job. over the years, many of us have visited iraq and afghanistan, and i have had that opportunity, but i know that the troops that the women have made bring us back a different perspective. i know the troops that i made, like time before last to afghanistan i went to the south. i went to camp leather neck where they were setting up the marines that just arrived and they were pushing out in the desert. we were not able to visit marja, which was one of the towns in that area. was totally under the control of the taliban. the taliban flag flew over marja. the last time i was there, totally changed. the marines had taken
to rename this ira the kay bailey hutchison spousal ira in her honor, and i hope, mr. president, we can join together and honor senator hutchison by getting that done before we close out our business this year. kay, of course, has always championed the state sales tax deduction, which may not seem like a big deal to others in this carriage carriages but it . but it is a big deal in texas. we don't have a state income tax. but we do pay a state sales tax. and of course kay has also worked to reduce the marriage penalty tax. she's been a strong defender of taxpayer interests and her efforts have made the tax code less hostile to saving and to families. she alluded to her great work with nasa. she's one of the senate's leading supporters of nasa and human space flight, and of course gnaws i nasa has contribd historic technological breakthroughs that have benefited all americans. kay appreciated the importance of basic scientific research to long-term american prosperity and she appreciates the role that nasa has played in fostering innovation. she's long said and advocated for support for nasa
of the appropriations committee, mrs. lowey, congratulate her on becoming the new ranking member. mrs. lowey: and i congratulate you on the wisdom that you share with us. mr. speaker, i rise in strong opposition to the bill. instead of putting forth a serious comprehensive and balanced deficit reduction plan, the republicans are taking a time-out so the house can embark on yet another effort to pass portions of the ryan budget. the same ryan budget that would end compare as we know it, walk away from the caps on discretionary spending agreed to in the budget control act and has no chance of being signed into law. our constituents want us to negotiate, agree to a solution to avoid economic catastrophe. i had concerns of some of the proposals that the president made in his negotiations with the speaker but at least the president was seeking a workable compromise. instead they walked away from the negotiating table, given everything our country has been through in the last two months from superstorm sandy to the tragedy of newtown, the last thing americans need is the politicians to refuse to compromi
greatly. they are senator kay bailey hutchison and senator scout brown. mr. president, in her marvelous book entitled "american heroines: the spirited women who shaped our country," senator kay bailey hutchison wrote the following: "no history can be written appropriately without acknowledging the part women have played in building the greatness of our country. end quote. as my valued colleague and good friend begins a new chapter in her life, i hope that she finds the time to add a new chapter to her own book, one that will be fascinating, inspiring, and auto biographical. like the women that kay celebrates, says an author from amelia earheart, from sally barton to condoleezza rice, kay bailey hutchison is a pioneer, a breaker of barriers. in the special election of 1993, the people of texas made her the first woman to represent them in the united states senate. in the three regular elections since then, they have confirmed their trust in her by ever increasing margins. as the leader of the senate commerce committee, kay has been a strong voice for transportation systems, better, effic
to the house that she has on her agenda. mr. sessions: the gentleman is correct and we expect those. mr. woodall: this is the kind of house, deliberative house, i came to be part of two short years ago. we have the ability to get these things done in the next few days. i reject the idea that i read over and over again that this house has been delaying action this house got it right wetch got it right in a budget in april of 2011, we got it right in our budget in 2012, we got it right when we passed aest sequester replacement and we're getting it right with this rule today. with that, i yield back the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlelady from new york. ms. slaughter: i'm pleased to yield one minute to the gentlelady from california, our leader, ms. pelosi. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlelady is recognized for one minute. ms. pelosi: thank you very much, madam chair. ranking member. thank you, mr. speaker. why did i sort of smell smoke when i heard this debate? it's reminiscent of nero fiddling while rome burned. the american people are waiting for us to get the
to close. mr. sessions: i thank the gentlewoman for asking. i have no further speakers and would allow her that opportunity and then i will close. ms. aughter: thank you very much. mr. speaker, we should be doing one thing today and that's passing the continuation of tax cuts for the middle class. the american people couldn't be more united in this support for tax cut and there is no reason for delay. the senate has already passed the bill and we can take up now, it's here at the desk. members across the aisle agree, that we must not let ose middle class taxes go up. with such common ground why would the majority waste another minute before ensuring that the taxes will not go up on the middle class? the answer isn't clear to me. i can't fathom it. but if the majority won't take action, we will. mr. speaker, if we defeat the previous question, i'm going to offer an amendment to the rule that says two things. one, first we will pass the bill to extend the middle class tax t. and second, that we will pass legislation that will avoid the fiscal cliff and the chaos that would ensue. and i ask u
is recognized. mr. berman: i would like to thank the sponsor of this legislation, ms. ros-lehtinen, for her leadership on this issue and her work in addressing the north korean threat. earlier this month, north korea carried out a missile launch using ballistic missile technology in correct defiance of the international community this important resolution condemns their launch, calls on the north korea to live up to its commitments, admere to its international obligations and deal piecefully with its neighbors. this is a blatant violation of the u.n. security council resolutions. 1718 and 1874. we urge the security council to take strong and concerted action to demonstrate that pyongyang's actions are completely unacceptable. in familiar -- in particular we call on china and russia to work construct ily with other members of the council to show that the international community is united in condemning north korea's provocative behavior. north korea is only further isolating itself with its irresponsible action and the development of ballistic missiles and nuclear weapons will never bring the
agree with her completely, mr. speaker. it's very important that we not let the sequester take place and i hope and believe that she is right, that we will not see that happen. and number two, i'd like to associate myself with her remarks as it relates to ensuring that we do not go over the fiscal cliff. that's something that is very, very desired on our part as well. i'd also like to respond to just one point very quickly, mr. speaker, before i yield to my good friend from roseville, and say that i can provide my friend from rochester, our distinguished ranking member of the rules committee, assurance that we will not be adjourning the congress today and ending our work. i have said, i said in the rules committee, mr. speaker, that we are going to continue with our work. the action that we're going to take as it relates to these two measures, again, the reconciliation package, which is designed to ensure that, as my friend from rochester has said, that we don't see sequestration which we all know would be devastating, take effect, it is a package of $238 billion over a 10-year perio

is inside that memorial. she just tweeted about her big sister. carly soto tweeted, going to meet mr. obama. wish vicki was here. dressed in all my big sister's clothes looking cute in honor of sissy. her sister, vicki, was that first grade teacher who quickly thought on her feet and protected as many of her little 6 and 7-year-olds as she possibly could. in fact, police later found seven of those youngsters sort of huddled surviving in a closet in that first grade classroom. we know that according to vicki's cousin, quote, she instinctively went into action when a monster came into a classroom and tried to protect the kids she loved so much. we want the public to know that vicki was a hero. let me tell you about another hero, the principal. donna hochsprung, 47 years of age. had been at this elementary school for two years. she was passionate. she loved children. the children loved her. she had a smile on her face. this one friend says she was a tough woman but a tough woman in the right sort of way, and security was a priority for her. again, she had been there for two years. she had alre

congress. i yield to the gentleman from louisiana. mr. scalise: i thank the gentlelady for her leadership, not only for hosting this hour but for being so passionate about the need to control spending, and the need to get the economy back on track. she was talking about about solutions to avert the fiscal cliff. if if you look at how we got here, nothing gets resolved out of washington, it's an abyss that doesn't need to happen. if you just go back and look at the promises made by poth because massachusetts when he was running for office, when he was running for re-election, he talked about working across the aisle he talked about bipartisan solutions he talked about it a lot and the american people expected that the president would keep that promise. but before the ink was even dry, before some of the states had confirmed and finalized their vote totals for this last election, the president comes out with a hyper partisan solution that's his approach. when the president comes out with his plan to raise taxes on some, not renew ores, to threaten middle class families with a tax increase i

. when mr. potato head was courting the future mrs. potato head, did he send her a mash note? >> i'm sure he did. somewhere along the line, i'm sure he did. but you know what? that's between those two. >> reporter: in 1964, responding to parents' complaining about rotting potatoes, the two birds got plasticors sews which doubled in size ten years later. along the way, they collected a lot more accessories. how many different parts are there? >> there are 365 different parts for the potato head that we've got going on right now. >> reporter: no wonder he needs that tater tush compartment. yes, that's what it's called. according to mathematicians at columbia university, those hundreds of parts allow for over 500 billion, septillion possible configurations. >> no matter what generation it was, there was always something about his funny personality and kind of the mix and match parts aspect of it that appealed to everybody. >> i'm picasso. >> in 1995 this portly pair went hollywood, alongside woody and buzz light-year in the blockbuster film "toy story." >> oh, my he

passion, i hope that her passion for social justice is an inspiration to all of us. thank you, mr. speaker, and i yield back the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlelady yields back. for what purpose does the gentleman from maryland seek recognition? mr. cummings: to address the house for one minute. the speaker pro tempore: does the gentleman ask for unanimous consent? mr. cummings: yes. the speaker pro tempore: without objection, so ordered. mr. cummings: thank you very much. today i'm incredibly pleased to congratulate my dear colleague for her aessential to the chair of the senate appropriations committee. the senator's commitment to our great state is undeniable. she has worked tirelessly throughout her prestigious career to serve her fellow marylanders first as a social worker and now as one of the most influential members of the united states senate. the senator is a leader that maryland and truly our nation can be proud of. she was the first woman elected to the senate who was not preceded by her husband or father and has continued breaking barriers ever since. t
homeschooled, and listen while providing mr. inhofe if oklahoma who home schools her kids and fears that somehow this convention would hand the power to an unelected group of international bureaucrats to direct the schooling of children and oklahoma. .. if you know what i do and you you. thank you. >> i welcome senator from iowa. >> it has been inspirational to watch them work together in a bipartisan fashion and to bring us to this point. i just hope that you we do not lose that in terms of the vote. i just came over from the dirksen building where we had a wonderful building honoring bob dole. mr. president, some time ago, i went back and i read senator dole's speech on the senate floor. april 14, 1969. mr. president, i would ask that it be included in my remarks that this speech be printed in the record. >> without objection. >> he spoke of the future. of people with disabilities in america. and what we needed to do to change our society. that was 1969, it is 21 years later when we passed the americans with disabilities act. the country has changed so much for the better because
her connecticut call on us. >> the gentlelady's time has expired. >> i yield back. >> mr. speaker, i reserve the balance of my time. >> let me yield myself 30 seconds to say that the bill that mysteriously appeared last night and passed the house in a bipartisan way -- let me point out a bipartisan opposition. no democrat voted for it and 16 republicans voted know. i yield to the gentleman from michigan. >> mr. speaker, i rise in opposition to this rule and the underlying bills. in the dead of night, five days before christmas, republicans introduced legislation they are rushing to the floor to get funding for health care, food assistance, and other vital services. christmas is a season of giving. but republicans are taking food off of the table of millions of americans by cutting food assistance by $36 billion. taking the unemployment lifeline away from 2 million americans who are trying to get back on their feet. taking funding away from block grants that provide productive services for abused children. why would republicans insist on taking so much away from our families during th
back up, which is exactly what nancy pelosi proposed. we will take her proposal. and mr. van hollen says it will not give one a democratic road or something -- for something your leader proposed three months ago. that as political theater, mr. van hollen. >> thank you, mr. speaker. i wish the outgoing chairman of financial services well. this policy did not make the tax proposal that would -- nancy pelosi did not have a tax proposal that would give people earning over $1 million in tax break. no. 2, the proposal the president has put on the table has trillions of dollars of cuts, which is more than in the cuts on the table and would deal with the sequestered. the republican proposal will increase the likelihood taxpayers have to pay -- bailout the financial industry again. they strip away the independence of the consumer finance protection board so that lobbyists can meddle in exactly how they do their work so that they are looking out for the interests of lobbyists rather than the interests of the american people. this approach we're seeing here is another example of trying to help
tv. mr. rather, thank you for being here. >> i'm always honored to be here. >> susan rice withdrawing her name from consideration for secretary of state. this is not the most unforeseen thing in the world but it still leaves a lot of questions unanswered. what do you think is the most important thing that just happened or that we should watch for happening? >> the most important thing that just happened is that president obama has once again been backed down and away. let's make no mistake. this is chalk one up for the republicans. they can hopefully in private smile, even smirk, wink at one another. they have the professional scalp of susan rice now hanging on their door. they backed president obama down and away. president obama for whatever reasons, and i thought andrea mitchell, a lot of the potential reasons for, it chose not to fight it to the end. there will be any number of people, and not all of them democrats, who say this tells us something about president obama. he was not for a friend, a close friend, a long-time supporter, someone who was eminently qualified, rhodes scho
of the economy and the united states obviously has work to do, my oldest daughter is doing her doctorate in math. there's a substantial contribution to national security in any case. with respect to the dr. jekyll and mr. hyde bit, economic growth is fundamental and innovation is the key engine for that and freedom is the foundation for that. i think we will see this play out in interesting ways globally including within china, and as we work to have a very open system economically and take advantage of technology, we also need to look at what needs to be done to deal with the threats of not just cyber but biotech and so on and look at doing that in partnership, and the partners we look at, and a substantial conversation about the rules of the road in cyberspace, we do that with many others, a fundamental issue. >> got a little bit from global security, the issue of the islands is primarily an issue of energy, and we are seeing it all over the world today, we don't have good mechanisms, maritime energy disputes, not only in the united states and eastern mediterranean, our pick is coming up. with
is recognized. >> thank you, madam speaker. i'd like to yield two minutes to my friend from texas, mr. barton. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from texas is recognized for two minutes. mr. barton: i thank you and want to thank the gentlelady from west virginia for her courtesy. she didn't have to do this since i'm in opposition to the bill and i appreciate. it i also want to apologize to the speaker. i should have known better that i had to be here at the beginning of the debate to claim time in opposition. so i have been reminaldsed of that. i am in opposition to this bill, although it is very well-meaning and well-intentioned. who could be opposed to saving some money, to our struggling financial institutions when they have to send out these privacy notices and for the smaller institutions there's no question that they're very expensive. the problem is that you can't just give away your privacy rights. and while this bill does nothing about the underlying issue of privacy, it does at least require that once a year banks and financial institutions subject to graham-leach-bliley inform
you expect mrs. clinton will say she can get beyond this? >> i think that remains to be seen. we just don't know what secretary clinton knew, what she approved, did her political deputy protect her? did he keep information from her because he is a very political guy? clearly has been a loyal soldier to secretary clinton, so did he cover up? that's a huge question of whether or not her deputies kept things from her to protect her, or if she knew about these cables and she made the decision. we need to know these answers. >> those are the questions that the members of congress may or may not be asking when they have these hearings. rick, thank you for your time. happy holidays and merry christmas. >> you too, eric. >> we'll see what happens. >>> fox news alert. i'll take this one. routers reporting dozens have been killed or injured in an uh syrian -- on a see yen airstrike on a bakery. new video just into fox. some are reporting 200 are dead or hurt. here you go. this is just a little while ago. the strike hit a town recently seized by rebels in a new push to take territory in the hama
